Honan, who’s still just 27, has been badly hampered by injury in recent times and Clare FM reported last night that’s he’s announced his retirement.

The rangy forward replaced hat-trick hero Shane O’Donnell in the 66th minute of the All-Ireland final replay against Cork four years ago, and put the icing on the cake with the Banner’s fifth goal in stoppage-time.

He made his debut for Clare seniors in 2010, scoring 5-21 in 13 championship appearances for the Banner.

The Clonlara clubman joins fellow Liam MacCarthy medalists Patrick Donnellan, Colin Ryan and Brendan Bugler in retiring from the inter-county scene since they lifted the All-Ireland title.
